.:The River of Dreams:. by DarkRika .:The River of Dreams:. by DarkRika
In the middle of the night I go walking in my sleep
From the mountains of faith to the river so deep
I must be looking for something, something sacred I lost
But the river is wide and it's too hard to cross

Even though I know the river is wide I walk down every evening and I stand on the shore
I try to cross to the opposite side so I can finally find out what I've been looking for

In the middle of the night I go walking in my sleep
Through the valley of fear to a river so deep
I've been searching for something taken out of my soul
Something I'd never lose, something somebody stole

I don't know why I go walking at night but now I'm tired and I don't want to walk anymore
I hope it doesn't take the rest of my life until I find what it is that I've been looking for

In the middle of the night I go walking in my sleep
Through the jungle of doubt to the river so deep
I know I'm searching for something, something so undefined
That it can only be seen by the eyes of the blind
In the middle of the night

I'm not sure about a life after this god knows I've never been a spiritual man
Baptized by the fire, I wade into the river that is running to the promised land

In the middle of the night I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of truth to the river so deep
We all end in the ocean 
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along by the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
by Billy Joel :cd:

_________________________________________________________________

I really made it! I wanted to finish this one as my final personal piece of this year and made it despite being ill for the last days. Huzzah!

I planned to make a picture to this song for so long; definitely my song of the year, making me so happy but also speaking to me so much.
I really went wild on the canvas this time and enjoyed it a lot! I tried many new things again and totally loved getting lost in the background's details. There's even a little story behind it but it's rather minor, so I'll keep it for myself.

I hope you like it! Thanks for looking!

I wish you all a Happy New Year 2016! :heart:
